Carlos Esperanza | Undergraduate Volunteer

I am a recent transfer to UC Santa Cruz majoring in Marine Biology. For the last 5 years, I have worked at a wildlife hospital aimed at the rehabilitation of injured and oiled seabirds. My research interests include marine mammals, ornithology, and marine invertebrate ecology. I hope to get accepted into a graduate program, followed by admission into a DVM program. While in the Friedlaender lab, I am actively working on whale reproduction endocrinology to better understand life history and demography.
